The Paths

BLUE PATH - close encounters
Over 100 display tanks. Sharks, Penguins, Turtles and Jellyfish are just some of the many protagonists of this exciting path. The blue path will show us the history of the planet and with it its biological evolution, reminding us through some tanks of the species still surviving after millions of years, such as the great sharks considered today as living fossils. Your visit will be a tour of the world under the surface of the water, starting from the Mediterranean Sea passing through the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Ocean up to the splendid and colorful coral reef of the Red Sea, populated by colorful organisms. Here all the aquarium tanks must be observed with great attention, especially the smaller ones, which meticulously recreate different environments, full of life and mystery. The aquarium therefore becomes not only a fascinating place where beauty shows its best, but an environment of observation and knowledge that allows man a greater contact with this world that is sometimes too far away.

Thanks to the 2 new generation tanks, the yellow path becomes one of the most important of the Cattolica Aquarium. An important step for the mission of the Aquarium that through collaborations with other European aquariums wants to actively contribute to the conservation projects of many species. Attention immediately falls on the world of fresh water and on all those creatures that live there including the very nice Asian otters.
